You must set up donations for your website before you are able to start collecting funds. Start here, with Basic Info, and then select other settings and preferences.
Setting Up Donation Open and Close Dates
Go to your Event Dashboard>> Donations>> Donations Setup>> Start Setting Up Donations.Start by choosing start and end dates for accepting donations. You may want donations to end when the event does, or you may want to keep them open for year-round fundraising. If you would like to keep them open, leave Donations Accepted Until blank.
Next, select a Payment Account. This account must be a 501c(3) payment account.
Next, write a message for the donations page. There is also an optional field for a Donations Closed message, if you are choosing to disable donations for part of the year.
Next, there is a toggle that allows you to enable recurring donations. If you turn on recurring donations, another toggle appears: Allow Stop Amount for Recurring Donations.
You can choose to allow donors to indicate a Stop Amount when they set up a recurring donation. This means that when their recurring donation total has reached an amount equal to the Stop Amount they indicated, it stops recurring.
At the bottom of the page, upload a logo or other image for the donations screen.
